Album of the Day
Remixed Collection Vol. 1 (1985-2000)
While such bands as The Smiths and New Order made Manchester famous for alternative rock in the 1980s, Simply Red gave the city a foothold on the pop charts. Led by singer-songwriter Mick Hucknall (whose auburn hair inspired the band name), the group has sold some 50 million albums worldwide in a career spanning more than three decades. Now available, REMIXED COLLECTION VOL. 1 (1985-2000) revisits their hit singles with vintage remixes and rarities on two CDs. Seven of the 22 tracks here are previously unreleased, including “Something Got Me Started” (David Morales Radio Mix) and “Money’s Too Tight To Mention” (United City Mix). Both longtime fans and newcomers to Simply Red's brand of blue-eyed soul will enjoy REMIXED COLLECTION VOL. 1's fresh take on these favorites.
